14. Minnehaha Academy
Location: Minneapolis, Minn.
17-18 Record: 28-3
Final Super 25 Rank: N/A
Why them: Coming off a 28-win season, Minnehaha is only losing three seniors to graduation. If you’re looking for even better news, none of those three players are Jalen Suggs, the USA Basketball five-star athlete ranked No. 13 in the Chosen 25 and holds offers from the likes of Gonzaga, Florida and Kansas.
In fact, the team has won the championship every year since Suggs stepped onto campus. Can they get the rare four-peat and have Suggs go out without knowing a losing season?
He has help. Sophomore Chet Holmgren is seven feet tall and posted a triple-double with 16 points, 14 rebounds and 10 blocks in this year’s championship game, according to KSTP, while freshman Prince Aligbe added 20 points and seven boards.
If those two can show the natural growth of young players and Suggs does what Suggs does, it’s tough to see a team taking Minnehaha down.
